TeamViewer has been steadily updating its free remote-desktop app for the iPhone and iPad with big features ever since it first hit the App Store over a year ago. This big new update adds another meaty treat: the ability to transfer files back and forth between your iDevice and a Mac (or PC).
Which means that, as long as your computer is left on back home, you should be able to retrieve any missing file over the Internet (or snatch a file from your iDevice). And yes, it’s still free; the catch is that wholesale, enterprise use of the app is expected to be paid for — to the tune of $100 for the iPhone app, and $140 for the iPad version.
TeamViewer also works with Windows and Linux boxes, and yes, even with Lion.

Since then, his fascination with technology has made him an intrepid early adopter of whatever charming new contraption crosses his path — which explains why he's Cult of Mac's test editor-at-large.
